Growing up on the Wrong Side of the Tracks, Victoria Vernon knows the sting of living with Less in a town of More. She also knows that living well is the best revenge, and through brains, beauty and an advantageous marriage, she not only lives well, she lives downright spectacularly.
Until the day that the FBI shows up on her doorstep and seizes everything she owns. She's left with no money, no friends and no resources, and her only option is to move back to her mother's house in the town she vowed never to see again.
Coming home is worse than she could have imagined.
Forced to navigate a past she didn’t want to confront, children she barely knows, her estranged mother and a determined FBI agent that is convinced that the path to her thieving husband is to her front door.
In the hilarious romp Going for Broke Victoria learns the hard way (the really quite humiliating and pathetic way, if you ask her) that a life filled with private jets, society galas and millions of dollars is not necessarily one worth mourning. And that sometimes stripping life down to the bare essentials is the way to find your true worth.
